Although the book On Death and Dying by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross was written some time ago and focuses on the way professionals interact with terminal patients it also gives perspectives from the patient's and love-one's view. It does not matter how long ago you lost a loved one; the grief can feel like it began yesterday even though years have passed.
